First Doctor's Appointment

We had our first visit with the pediatrician yesterday - everything went great! So far he has been a dream - sleeping so much that Adam and I find ourselves anxiously awaiting some awake time with him. I hope I didn't just jinx us!

Car ride to the pediatrician

Although he has been eating like a champ, his weight dropped slightly to 6 lbs 13 oz (normal) - selfishly I was a little happy. I want him to stay small forever!

Welcome Declan!

After approximately 7 1/2 hours of labor and 45 minutes of pushing, we are excited to introduce

Declan John Herkert!

Born on Thursday March 26, 2009 at 3:27 pm - one day before his due date.
7 lbs, 0 oz and 19 inches. Declan is an Irish name meaning "full of goodness."
Adam and I are having a great time - running on adrenaline, but loving every minute of it!
